Founder & CEO


Jan 2000 - current

In 2000 ExitReality.com was registered. From that point on I have focused all my time, energy and efforts into developing the perfect 3D Internet. I saw 3D as an untapped market, a media type yet to be fully adopted by the mass market of web users. After nearly a decade of hard work, I couldn’t be more proud and excited for ExitReality officially coming out of private beta and globally launching to the public in 2008. In April 2007, world-leading IT research & advisory company, Gartner, made the prediction that “80 Percent of Active Internet Users Will Have A ‘Second Life’ in the Virtual World by the End of 2011”. With the launch of ExitReality, the aim is to potentially bring that prediction date a lot closer!
